The Program in Theater presents a four-day festival of original shows created by and featuring Princeton seniors William Alvarado, Ben Diamond, Chase Hommeyer, Nathan Phan, and Julia Yu.
All shows are free and open to the public in the Drapkin Theater Studio (second level) and CoLab (forum level) at the Lewis Arts complex.
A post-festival talkback discussion will be held May 3 at 2 PM featuring interviews with each of the five seniors and a conversation with the audience moderated by sophomore Nora Aguiar.
